This is my 1st post. So i hope i did it right. I'm From Wash state and new to DU. I enjoy the posts immensely because it helps me sort out my thoughts and opinions. I think i will like it here.
I know this is an e-mail sent out to everyone who signed up on Barack Obama.com. But i just thought it was such a class act for a president to do this. I hope that everyone in the path of this storm stays safe. My thought are with you all on the east coast.
This is a serious storm, but we are going to do what it takes
to keep people safe and secure, and make sure the communities
affected get the assistance they need. FEMA is working with
state and local governments to respond effectively. We all owe
a debt of thanks to the first responders who will be dealing with
the immediate impact of the storm.
If you live in the storm's path, please listen to state and local
authorities about where and how to take shelter and stay safe --
and encourage your friends and family to do the same. If you are
asked to evacuate, please take that seriously.
